The full programme for the first ever national Health and Care Analytics conference has been revealed, showcasing the best work and ideas from across the UK.
With talks, workshops, panel discussions and posters from more than 150 submitted abstracts and expert guest speakers, the packed programme runs across two days on July 11-12.
The conference is free and open to anyone in the NHS, public sector or health and care-related voluntary sector. This year’s theme is ‘analysts as influencers’ – leading the conversation and driving innovation in their field.
Conference co-chair Ben Goldacre said: “I’m delighted to be co-chair of national Health and Care Analytics Conference. I’ve said before that it’s vital the importance of analytics is recognised in health and care, and this conference is a huge step in making that happen."
Alongside confirmed speakers, including NHS England’s Chief Data and Analytics Officer, Ming Tang, and England’s Chief Scientific Officer, Professor Dame Sue Hill, the conference will feature talks, posters, workshops and drop-in rooms from a huge range of organisations, demonstrating the important work being done by analysts in health and care and examining how this drives impactful change.
